Our "Westworld" Deep Dives are always dense, but this one truly is a thicc-ass boi. In this breakdown of Season 4, Episode 7, Gene and Big D compare simulations to reality, dissect William's conversation with himself and ask why Bernard would leave The Door open.
"Metanoia" also leads the Shat Crew to explore who Bernard's video message was for, what Christina is, and why that one guy decided to set fire to his office.

Westworld Episode 7 Summary:
Bernard and Maeve travel to Hoover Dam to open the door to the Sublime, which Charlotte has kept preserved in the dam's data vault. Christina goes with Teddy to Olympiad Entertainment and has its employees destroy the premises and erase all the stories controlling the humans. Stubbs and Frankie use the distraction to rescue Caleb. Charlotte prepares to discontinue the hosts' inhabitation of human cities so that they can "transcend" their human bodies. William convinces his host self that humans are a fundamentally destructive species; the William host realizes his true purpose and kills the human William. Bernard and Maeve enter the tower; Maeve fights Charlotte while Bernard accesses the control room. William kills Charlotte, Maeve, and Bernard, then programs the tower to turn the humans against each other before it self-destructs. Christina is unable to stop the chaos and realizes the humans cannot see her; Teddy explains that while the world is real, she is not physically there.
